“Silent night, holy night …”, we all love the Christmas carol! At the moment it is ringing everywhere, because the time has come. We no longer count the days, but the hours until Christmas Eve. Hopefully this year you will also be able to do without the usual Christmas stress. Have you already decorated your home, baked cookies and wrapped gifts? But have you forgotten something, haven’t you? We put it this way: it has to be festive all around, which is why your outdoor area also needs suitable Christmas decorations. As always, we can help you with a few clever tips. In the following we show nice ideas for a stylish Christmas decoration outside. Some of them can be done in the last minute before the festival, but they all bring the spirit and magic of Christmas with them. Therefore, decorate your house entrance and the front yard and create a unique atmosphere outside that gets you, your neighbors and random passers-by in the mood for the party.
Christmas decorations outside – make your house entrance inviting!
The traditional colors, a lot of green, a little white and red, should not be missing in the Christmas decorations outside.
Christmas decorations outside – decorate the house entrance!
It is best to start with the entrance area! Most house residents opt for traditional decoration in front of the house entrance. For example, hang beautiful Christmas wreaths on the front door, decorate the door frame with garlands made of fir green, ideally combined with small LED lamps. In such a Christmas decoration outside, the classic colors red, green and a little white dominate. However, it could also be different! You can choose other colors according to your own preferences and decorate the house entrance in silver, blue or snow white. It is also common to add large figures, such as a snowman or two nutcrackers, lanterns or tall planters with fir trees. When it comes to beautiful Christmas decorations outside, you really have a lot of design options available and you can let your creativity run free.

What else could your Christmas decorations outside contain?
As we all know well, the beauty lies in the small details that often have a powerful visual effect. It is therefore worth paying more attention to the small decorative items. The next picture examples will convince you exactly of their value in every Christmas decoration outside. For example, arrange symbolic or typical Christmas decorations in front of the house and make your front yard shine. With large candy canes (maybe made by yourself?) Or labeled Christmas trees made of wood, you are sure to make a stylish impression on neighbors and passers-by. On the one hand you arouse enthusiasm, on the other hand you promote a good festive mood among other people. What if that wasn’t a big reason for your Christmas decorations outside?

Combine LED lighting and Christmas decorations outside
In winter the days get shorter and the nights longer. Outside it gets dark earlier and it is nicer if the entrance to the house and the front yard are well lit. By the way, you know, there is nothing better than an atmospheric, glowing Christmas decoration outside. On cold evenings, it not only brightens up your outdoor area, but also creates a cheerful mood for onlookers. For example, you can opt for LED lights and fairy lights and attach them to the house entrance. In this way, you can bathe your front door in soft light in the evening.
Combine the Christmas decorations outside with LED lighting and make it even more attractive.

Here we mean different figures, icicles, light trees and light balls that are intended precisely for outdoor use. Solar lighting is also on the rise, e.g. solar lanterns, gnomes and owls. You can use it to create a fairytale-like, festive atmosphere in your front yard, on the balcony or on the veranda that will please young and old. And makes everyone’s heart beat faster!

Our extra tip: Please observe all safety measures and rules for outdoor lighting in your state. The festive lighting must often not be brighter than it is on site. Also consider the night time of 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. During this period of time, your Christmas outdoor lighting must not disturb your neighbors under any circumstances. It is better to find out more about the rules that apply to you.
